Thanks to Sarah for the L.L. Bean tote bag sale tip. I went with a large bag, open-top, regular handles, in dark green with monogramming. It took me a few minutes to figure out my initials because I have a hyphenated last name. In the end, I went with something that isn't entirely accurate but is more aesthetically correct. I'm sad that they no longer offer the traditional diamond monogram. I had to settle for the "classic" style. For some reason I've been obsessed with monograms lately.
